Child access solicitors   

Apply for family visas that grant you access rights to a child in the UK. Our immigration lawyers can guide you in collecting relevant documentation to optimise the visa approval process. All you have to do is work with MRG Solicitors today, serving London and Manchester.  

Helping you secure your access rights  

If you have a child in the UK that you’re trying to get access to, our family law experts can help you apply for a child arrangement order. This will allow you to maintain direct contact with your child, prevent the impact of visitation disagreements, and reunite families as quickly as possible.  


Having extensive knowledge of this area of law, MRG Solicitors work with many clients across Manchester and London, especially around extending family visas for those who wish to stay in the UK. With actionable solutions and expert guidance, our goal is to help you reach the best outcome for you. The Home Office grants entry to parents living abroad to exercise access to rights to children in the UK, as long as the specific conditions have been followed. We’ll help you understand these.
